Cheddar Cheese Biscuits - amazing flavor but you only need one! Perfect side to any chili, soup or stew

We got our first snow yesterday! It didn't last long, as our temps here in the DC area have been unseasonably high, and the kids were disappointed again.

There is a possible “real” snowstorm on the forecast for next weekend, so we'll see. In the meantime, we're cooking our favorite soups and stews during these winter months.

One way I keep our menu plan out of a rut is by adding new sides, especially breads, to our rotation of favorite soups so there's something new to try alongside an older recipe.

These Cheddar Cheese Biscuits get requested very often by my kids, and it's the perfect accompaniment to chicken soup.

So a caveat: these are not light, flaky biscuits. They're heavy, very buttery, and so decadent.

This recipe is the opposite of all the healthy food I usually share, but sometimes you just need comfort food. These biscuits are definitely in that category!
